ClimateTruth.org worked with a coalition of organizations to call on AARP to leave the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), an extreme right-wing group that lobbies against the interests of seniors and blocks climate action. AARP quickly announced that they will not be renewing their membership!
This is a huge victory with a loud and clear message: it is unacceptable to support groups that collaborate with the fossil fuel industry to drive runaway climate change. Climate change denial endangers seniors’ health and our grandchildren’s future.
Sign our thank you card to Jo Ann Jenkins, CEO of AARP, from the ClimateTruth.org community!
